Former JLL exec joins Accordia as EVP, acquisitions and capital markets

Accordia Realty Ventures in Fairfield on Monday said Matthew Pizzolato joined the investment and development firm as executive vice president, acquisitions and capital markets.

Prior to joining Accordia, Pizzolato spent nine years at JLL Capital Markets, Americas, as managing director on the Debt and Equity Placement Team in New Jersey. He was part of the HFF acquisition in 2019. His foundational experiences also include roles at Deutsche Bank and Prudential Financial, where he developed his finance and leadership skills.

In his role at Accordia, Pizzolato will be charged with expanding the firm’s portfolio through strategic acquisitions, focusing on the Northeast, Southeast and strategic markets across the U.S. In his new role, Pizzolato will oversee Accordia’s capital markets functions, including financing strategy and capital sourcing for all acquisitions and developments. He will also serve as the primary relationship manager with the firm’s key investment partners.

“Matt’s expertise and background in acquisitions and capital markets make him an invaluable asset to the explosive growth of our organization,” Jason Bogart, principal, Accordia, said. “We are excited to welcome him to the leadership team.”

“With over a decade of experience in the commercial real estate industry, I’ve gained a deep knowledge of — and a unique appreciation for — New Jersey’s many opportunities for smart investment,” Pizzolato shared. “I’m looking forward to leveraging my experience to grow Accordia’s Northeast and East Coast presence.”
